The Caffeinated Chemist


Death Wish Coffee delivers on its catchphrase, “World’s Strongest Coffee”. This brew is not for the faint of heart. If you get severe caffeine jitters you should stop reading now. However, if you’re a college student, busy professional, night-shift worker, or deal with chronic fatigue, read on. The caffeine content in this coffee may make it so only those with a death wish consume greater than a single cup. In a single 8 oz cup, you will find an astonishing 472 mg of caffeine. To put things into perspective, if you had 12 ounces of this coffee it would nearly be the equivalent of CONSUMING 9 RED BULLS!!!!! (8.4 oz, each).

While some people may be able to tolerate this large concentration of caffeine, others may need to proceed with caution. According to Maggie Sweeney, a Ph.D., postdoctoral research fellow at Johns Hopkins University, serious caution should be used when drinking too much caffeine. “People should be aware of the effects of getting too much caffeine. It varies from individual to individual, but consuming more than your normal amount could make you feel nervous, anxious, irritable, or jittery, and may cause excessive urine production or irregular heartbeat.” Sweeney goes on to say, “That could be the case even for people used to caffeine. And for those who have anxiety or insomnia, it could worsen their symptoms.”

But how does Death Wish actually taste? Well… not great. The aroma is nearly lacking with a faint scent that I wouldn’t classify as desirable. Meanwhile, the taste is fine for a bold dark roast. However, for the price I was expecting more flavor; it is not something to write home about. The low acidity and smoothness of the cup almost redeem the lack of aroma and flavor. Almost. While it is fairly expensive for a review on this site, you only need a very tiny amount of coffee so the bag should last you a LONG TIME making it a more reasonable deal. All in all, if you are looking for something to keep you alert at top performance then you should try Death Wish Coffee (in moderation of course….) However, if you are just looking for an excellent flavor to appease your palate, you may want to hold off.
